Erika Shelvey first started nail school at Systems Beauty College in Brandon, in August of 2012. She always had an interest for nails and beauty so she decided to go for it. Erika graduated from Systems in 2013 and did her apprenticeship at Get Nailed Salon and Spa. During that time she also took her courses for eyelash extensions, eyelash lifts and tints as well as body sugaring, all taught by the ladies at The Beauty Theory in Winnipeg.
In 2016 Erika decided that she wanted to open her own small business and work for herself. At that point she elected to go mobile, and offer in home appointments. She found out pretty quickly that there was a demand for a mobile nail salon. As Erika tells bdnmb.ca “Business was and still is going great”.
She has since moved to a home just outside of Shilo, where she opened up a small home salon, where she can offer all of her services. Currently, she is mostly working from home, but still does offer mobile services as well.
Erika has a real passion for the industry and is always taking part in any art classes or shaping classes that are available to her. She has travelled as far as Saskatoon to learn from Celina Ryden, a well known Nail Tech from Sweden. Erika will go above and beyond to try and please every single one of her clients and is always open to trying anything!
Her Facebook page is Nails by Erika and her Instagram page is @nails.by.erikaa. She posts pictures of all her work, as well as new products, new techniques, and her monthly specials.
